Syracuse Basketball Freshman Underwent Knee Surgery This Morning—February 12, 2015

Chris McCullough, the 6-foot-10 Syracuse basketball freshman, had knee surgery this morning to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

"It went well," his uncle, Andre McCullough said by text message. Chris McCullough injured the knee in a Jan. 11 game against Florida State in the Carrier Dome. He postponed surgery a couple weeks ago, when the swelling had not subsided enough to allow the procedure.

McCullough's surgery was performed in Manhattan by Dr. Answorth Allen, who also serves as the team orthopedist for the New York Knicks. McCullough had been looking forward to surgery so he could start the rigorous process of rehab and be ready for the 2015-16 basketball season.
